PEOPLE magazine recently named Hank Fortner as one of their “Heroes Among Us.” Hank stared AdoptTogether, an organization that allows would-be adoptive parents to invite their friends, family and strangers alike to help them meet the costs of adopting (which can reach up to $40,000). This is close to our heart as we have used AdoptTogether to raise funds for our next adoption (which we are still waiting on) and we have friends who have used it as well.
Here’s a couple of cool statistics that PEOPLE magazine highlighted::
- AdoptTogether has raised over $8.6 million to help people adopt.
- AdoptTogether has helped 2,100 couples, families and individuals open their homes to children in need.
There is a great article about AdoptTogether on the PEOPLE magazine website along with an interview with Hank. It is well worth your time!
